Honestly, whatever. I'm so over it, it's not even funny. It probably didn't help that I absolutely hated Mockingjay. I couldn't even bring myself to write a review of it, I was so disappointed. But, with all this movie hype and talk of actresses, I was starting to get excited again. I did absolutely LOVE The Hunger Games after all.
Of all the people that they considered, this is the LAST person I thought they'd choose. But, it seems as if we haven't even begun and are already straying away from the book. Fantastic! Maybe they'll rewrite Mockingjay completely and I'll like it! haha!! Yes, of course they'll probably change her hair, but I don't think that even Hollywood can take years off a person's life. And, I'm sorry, but even with brown hair.....really??
I'm not saying anything about her acting abilities. I haven't seen her, and I'm sure she's great. I'm just disappointed that they are choosing to pick someone so seriously NOT Katniss. But......they didn't ask me! :P
From The Wrap:
The studio plans the franchise as a trilogy which will include "The Hunger Games," "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay," based on the best-selling young adult books by Suzanne Collins.
Lawrence will play the role of Katniss, a girl who joins a survival contest in order to save her community. The story takes place in the future, where teenagers are chosen by lottery to compete to the death in gladiator-like spectacles, the Hunger Games.
Alex Pettyfer, who plays John in "I Am Number Four," is rumored to be under consideration for the role of Peeta Mellark, as are Josh Hutcherson ("The Kids Are All Right," "Bridge to Terabithia") and Hunter Parrish ("Weeds").
Gary Ross ("Seabiscuit") is directing the movie, which will debut on March 23, 2012.
Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "State of Play") wrote the screenplay. Nina Jacobson, Jim Miller and Alli Shearmur are producing.
If they cast Alex Pettyfer as Peeta, I just might throw up! I love him, but he is NOT Peeta, and Peeta is my favorite, and you better not mess him up!!!
This has, however, gotten me interested in seeing "Winter's Bone." It looks pretty intense. Have you seen it?
